Been here three years ago and still very good. Can’t believe the menu hasn’t changed. But very good. The lighting could be a little brighter as it can be quite dark for groups
Good food, quiet location so great for a lunch time catch up. We had the yumcha banquet (good value) and the chicken wings were a highlight. Wine list was ok, no coffee available.
Great service as usual. Menu hasn’t changed much. Most dishes delicious. Mocktails and cocktails were great. Ordered too much food - would’ve been good if the wait staff could advise when ordering that we shouldn’t reduced the number of items ordered.
The chicken and fungi dumplings, and the prawn toast were exceptional.
Nice boutique restaurant. Food great but the spring rolls were probably a bit salty (however I don’t normally take salt). They gave my husband a little birthday muffin with a lit candle which was a nice touch. It was delicious! Thank you!
Service was abit slow
Spice Temple always has fabulous food, good cocktails, reasonable prices and the service is the appropriate level of attentive but not overbearing.
Beyond our expectations. Would come back again. So delicious’
Amazing service. We had a vegan in our group and everything was beautifully presented and served .
Good food, somewhat spicy. Hard to find, it’s just a door that leads down to a basement. Very dark lightning. We had the eggplant and the shrimp dumplings which were both very good
Great Chinese food! Atmosphere and mood was also great!
Great culinary experience around different regions of China! Authentic yet modern. Great ambience, good service, great wine matching too!!
The food was sensational! The flavour combinations matched with the wines were just excellent my wife and I enjoyed our Valentines at the Spice Temple.
The staff were very good. Unfortunately the food was not as good as I had hoped. We had the ribs which were very good but the duck pancakes and prawn Kung pow was not as good as I had wanted.
Repeat customers - the food is phenomenal and really great service for one of Sydney’s best restaurants.
One of my favorite fine dining places. Food is to die for, the atmosphere is romantic or kinda dark, red, design perfect for the evening. Service is excellent too
Great food and venue. Just a little disappointed...we felt a bit rushed our food came out before our cocktails so we couldn’t enjoy them. Our reservation was at 2.30 and we were there on time. The kitchen closes at 3, if you want to have a late lunch you have to go earlier to relax.
food was very elegant and refined in taste, a little dark atmosphere for me, , but overall very delicate food preparation, easy location too which is always appreciated
Had the Chinese New Year banquet and as usual the food was excellent. Cocktails were excellent. Our waiter was also great but the support staff left a bit to be desired, hard to get their attention and had to wait to get my jacket when leaving for some time. Small things but I’ve been here a lot of times and previously I wouldn’t have had anything negative at all to say.
Thoroughly enjoyed the Chinese New Year banquet. We were offered complimentary scallops. The only let down is the ambience, the restaurant is very dark.
